Training plans include multiple mileage options designed to meet the needs of everyone from beginning marathoners/half marathoners to more experienced runners, twice weekly workout emails from your coach and a training shirt.

Spring training participants receive:

“I enjoyed meeting all the wonderful runners of all abilities cheering everyone on to their goals. Happy to have no judgement for not being as fast as anyone else.”

“I loved the coaches, the TLs, the other people I ran with – I made so many new running friends and it made it so much nicer to run for hours on end. I loved that its broken up into pace levels because then I didn’t feel intimidated. Everyone is so great.”

“I say this all the time but I could NOT have completed the marathon without Run Minnesota Training. I loved every class even when the workouts were hard and I was hot because I knew I wasn’t alone.”

” I couldn’t make the group runs because of my work schedule so I signed up for the Sprint Tier. Following the training plan in Final Surge was great and the biweekly emails from the coach really helped me understand the training .”
